's the way people are starting to challenge the ideology. but look at penn state and the tragedy and the conviction of jerry sandusky. i think already people are understanding how sexual abuse in children can be very, very damaging and they're taking greater lengths to protect children. also, all the various uprisings in the middle east from egypt to the tragedy still going on in syria, i think we're at a new place in the middle east where we have a younger generation that's using a new tool in the environment, technology -- during egypt's uprising, for instance, i was getting tweets and facebook posts from people. so i can imagine you being a cnn employee, trying to get to the american media to spread the word. so i think that the path we're on now, while it's still bloody and tragic might be a better path towards eventual peace in the middle east. i am not predicting it here for 2013, i think that's a big story. the last one i think is the gay marriage story. i think we're finally understanding you can't legislate love. but you can support love when it's there. i think people a

's always the expectation game. and so her expectations are so high. i remember mark penn saying to a client, and i was there, we'll see you after the election when it's president clinton, and of course it wasn't. the first thing she's got to do is find a new team. the people who led her campaign in 2008 should not be the ones if she decides in 2016 because they didn't get it. they didn't understand it. and secondly that she's got an opportunity now to really fix those challenges that made her such a popular, powerful person among democrats, but so polarizing. i do think she'd be the front-runner. i think joe biden will run as well. and so you're going to have two different generations at each other. and it will be an interesting contrast. if jeb bush decides that he wants to run yet again. we ould have a clinton/bush contest. >> yeah, and nobody knows, but if my impression is at a time like this when a woman has had such a rich and varied life in so many important positions, when history comes calling, you can't say no. >> well, also when everybody you meet, abroad, at home, every day tells
